In 1936, an elderly Doctor Watson sits at his desk with a dictation machine and, over a two week period, recounts the significant moments in his life. The expected publication of his autobiography never materialized. But in 2017 the wax cylinders containing Watson's words appeared and have at last been made available to the general public. This, then is life of Doctor John H Watson.

Let down by poor narration
I'm not sure how I feel about the actual story in this book as I found the narration so dull that I really couldn't concentrate on what was happening. Although the narration may be trying to mimic the hesitant voice of the elderly Watson (as described in the preface), the effect on the listener is of a dull, monotonous drone, devoid of any interest, emotion or excitement.
Sadly I haven't been able to make it to the end of this book as I found the narration so boring I kept losing track of the plot. I would definitely think twice before trying another book read by this narrator, although I may try a print or Kindle version of the book to see whether the story itself is enjoyable.
I would recommend trying a sample to see what you think of the narration before purchasing.
